Free? What's the catch? DLC?

Sadly, this game is nowhere near what it should have been.

The framerate is surprisingly low, but steady, even on a 3rd Gen Touch (64gb).
The gameplay is fairly fun, and the turning controls work well, although you can't control the speed of your rolling. Because of that, you never really get a feel of excitement.

But it's the IAP that kill the game. Sure you can earn Coins in small amounts by playing levels, but you'll have to grind a lot to make enough to buy new levels. Purchasing levels costs more and more coints, and even the $.99 IAP is only enough to buy about 5 of them... and still, you have to pay for different ball colours.

Even the amount of content available is rather low. 10 levels in the starting world, and 1 level in each of 2 different worlds. Obviously they will add more levels to those other worlds, but I doubt I'll come back to play them.

All that extra development time and no retina graphics???

The game plays great but I wish gameresort could have rendered it in retina resolution (it was originally going to release in June)
It's not like there are more levels or anything since then.

In fact, they have hardly worked on a thing since the video earlier this year.
There is one wild west level and one cave level.

I really looked forward to this game only to be kind of disappointed.
I hope they chime in and let us know whats going on with this game that feels like a lite version

Does anyone know if buying the coins for 99c disables the ads?

The ads are really annoying. It makes the game slower, especially on the menu.

Otherwise I think the game is fun.

I would pay for ads free as well.

I think this game could be great if:

1. The different ball colors were not only visual.

2. Add some type of Stardunk ball difference.

3. Add some sort of competition system in a HR Battle style. Can you imagine competing against other players online for the most coins?

4. Add some speed feeling to the game, it should be a way to boost it.

Well, this is it for now. I hope those guys listen to us and make some changes. Simple games like that can be easily a blast.

Cheers,

Bruno

I think it is an okay game but maybe my expectations were too high. This game was suppose to come out some time ago, just thought it would offer more.

Playing on an iPad th graphics are not very good, really fuzzy.
